connell set as his goal the fact that obama wouldn't be re-elected. now if boom geobama -- if obama gets re-elected, that has past. and john boehner will have to think about his feature as speaker. if he wants to stand with the tea party or stand with the vast moderate majority of people in this country who believe that there have to be some revenues, and there have to be some cuts, and there have to be entitlement reforms. there's a rational, sane middle road out there. if romney wins, then he will have to deal with the democrats in the senate which he will want to do, and he will have to say to his right wing as he has implicitly over the last three or four weeks that no, guys, we're not going to have this extreme policy. and as for tax rates mattered, i mean, i think we all live through the great depression of the 1990s after bill clinton raised taxes. and the great depression of the 1980s after ronald reagan raised taxes, especially on business, three times. >> we're going to have to see stop -- no, we're going to have stop, take a break. >>> when we come back, we'll talk inevitably about all t

an election unless you think there's potential. >> paul: let's take a president obama ad attacking mitt romney in ohio. >> it's said that character is what we do when we think no one is looking. >> mitt romney thought no one was looking when he attacked 47% of americans, his company shipped jobs overseas, his plan cuts millionaires taxes, but raises yours. he'll voucherize medicare and make catastrophic cuts to education. so remember what romney said and what his name would do. >> paul: taking our name in vein, the 15th time, the wall street journal does not agree with any of the-- >> what do you think? >> this is a-- this is a distilled message (laughter) of the campaign. >> he keeps returning to this class warfare theme and this is in ohio and thinks the outsourcing, hitting the rich. 47% plays well with less educated white men in the midwest and where he's focusing ads. >> paul: is that really a good closing argument, dan? that's not an argument for the second term. >> it's not. and i honestly do not understand it, paul. it's -- i think it reflects barack obama's antipathy toward mitt romne
disillusioned. a >>> we are ten days away from the presidential election. president obama seems to be steadily regaining a narrow lead, a lead he held over mitt romney before the presidential debates began earlier this month. the latest polling averages according to nate silver of "the new york times" give president obama 50.3 with mitt romney 48.6. president obama has a 74% chance of winning the election based on his strong performance in several swing states. the president is hoping to capitalize on the momentum to encourage voters to go to the polls as soon as possible by taking advantage of early voting. as of this morning, more than 10.5 million people have already cast their ballots including the president himself. president obama flew back to chicago on thursday to take advantage of early voting in illinois becoming the first sitting president in history to cast a ballot early. mitt romney's campaign, meanwhile, has been buffeted by a series of things that happened to put him on defensive. richard mourdock, who romney has endorsed, became the latest gop candidate to make con throw versa
at the campaign schedules for president obama and governor romney from now until election day. they are making a mad dash seeking swing state votes. we have tracie potts tracking it all from washington. >> reporter: new this morning, the nation's unemployment rate is 7.9%, up slightly from a month ago as expected although 171,000 jobs were created in october, plus 134,000 not originally reported in september. >> this is a great report. >> it is consistent with the consumer confidence numbers. it illustrates the break we have seen. consumers have been saying we have more jobs and we're feeling better. >> reporter: both candidates land in ohio today. so far here is the travel schedule. governor romney visits seven states, including a rally in ohio with 100 supporters and politicians and celebrities. in virginia, a make up from hurricane sandy. >> he was the other day talking about saving characters on "sesame street" and playing word game was my name. >> reporter: president obama also visits seven states between now and election day with a focus on ohio. his must-win state. he'll be there every
drive them to the polls on election day? even among the fervent obama supporters at this rally, this is a common theme. >> were you more excited four years ago or more excited today? >> i have to say honestly, i was more excited four years ago. >> reporter: meanwhile, fervent supporters at the romney rally often have their own nuanced motivations. are you more emotional about wanting romney to win or wanting obama to lose? >> wanting obama to lose, yes. most definitely. >> reporter: that motivates you? >> yeah. he let the whole country down. >> reporter: candidates appreciate any kind of support. but the more unconditional and enthusiastic that support is, the more likely that voter will go to the polls. and voter turnout on november 6th will be critical. romney strategists have been concerned that the perceived lack of their candidate's competitiveness could ultimately lead to less enthusiasm and therefore, a lower turnout. so the message being emphasized to the gop base is that romney can win. than makes the message from obama strategists all the more interesting. in order to
. furthermore, in the last election, 2008, 300,000 evangelicals did not turn out and obama won by, what, 260,000. there's all sorts of reasons. let me say something about the ground game. that's what -- this is my tenth presidential race. i started on the ground game. my first job, i was the butt end of an elephant in lincoln day parade. i know about the ground game. at some point, every time you ask the obama people what's so great about their ground game, they tell you how many offices they have. there's a rate of diminishing return. there's only so many voters that turn out. there's only so many phone calls you can make. if you don't have -- if they're not turning out for anything, then it doesn't matter how good your ground game is. our ground game is completely effective and it's proved itself over and over in the midterm elections. it is true what james is saying, they have this new microtargeting having your high school girlfriend call you or some of your twitter friends or something like that. if it works, it scares me, actually. >> you said you were the butt end of the elephant? tha
had on the facebook posting about saying if obama were not elected there would be riots in the street. i really do not believe that it will be an election dispute. i think mitt romney is probably going to win overwhelmingly. i think every honest american 2016 go see the obama movie or rented on the redbox. i do not know what is wrong with america. people believe they do not have to go to work and make a living now. expect the government to supply their living for them. host: thank you for the call. are we a democracy or a republic? if we end the alleged world college will be a democracy -- eventual tyranny. gale on the independent line. caller: high. what i find absolutely shocking is the fact that none of your callers have rocked and the influence that grover norquist has on this election. -- have brought in the influence that grover norquist has on this election. if there is a tie, he is the most influential person in terms of throwing money around. if this person is not on board with these contracts that he has had well over 90% of the republicans signed, he said he will make them
reason for preferring president obama. captioned by the national captioning institute --www.ncicap.org-- >> all was there. the election this two weeks away, and both candidates are running as if there is no tomorrow. >> this is the first on our 48- hour flight-around campaign marathon extravaganza. we are going to pull an all- nighter. no sleep. >> no question about it, we're seeing more and more enthusiasm, or more support. >> the economy grew at an annual rate of 2%. not great, but better than expected. right here i have a very shaky limb and i will ask you to step out on it. the election were held tomorrow, mark, and who would win? >> i should not go out on any limb, given my weight. barack obama would win based upon the superior effort of the obama campaign at this point and in turning out early voters. >> evan ? >> obama, but we still have a way to go. >> nina? >> i hate doing this, but obama because of the crown them. >> colby? >> national tracking polls has of them close, but the key battleground states, obama still holds a lead. >> what is the ground game, mark? >> t
in a generation, to meet and entrust that national emergency. remember when president obama was elected, he said he'd put a lot of people to work in shovel-ready job. turned out there weren't that many jobs that were ready in. the wake of sandy, i don't think there are enough shovels ready for up and down the jersey and new york coast. these jobs will be created. this destruction, estimated between $30 billion and $50 billion. i think it's going to exceed that. maybe at least get to the high end. will finally move the employment need until this country. now, when we look at industries that have been hardest hit since the great recession, the one that stands out the most is the construction business. construction business is about half of what it was six years ago. the culprit, banks that are afraid to lend, excess of homes, no need for new buildings and roads. the federal government doesn't need loans from banks. the federal government can cut immediate checks to get work done. the federal government is the only entity big enough for this job. i think it will keep the situation for dissolving in
-ryan. a high turnout, a true democratic turnout, will absolutely re-elect obama. >> yeah, and some states, from what i understand, the voting forums are like 30 pages to go through. it's going to be interesting. >> i really think that another long-term job is to look at this voting situation very seriously because florida in 2000 was actually won by gore as every later survey showed, and yet, it went to bush. i mean, we have a very, very flawed voting system. but the good thing i see as i travel is that people, especially women, are not only ready to vote, they will fight to vote. they will not go away until they vote. >> as everyone should. gloria steinem, thank you so much. appreciate you being here. >> thank you. >>> late night comedians proving they aren't afraid to take on anyone. even a hurricane. find out what letterman and his pals had to say about super storm sandy. this is hayden. he's five years old. that's elizabeth. and that's skyler... and his mom, nancy. they're just a few of the californians who took it on themselves to send you a message about what they need to restore years of
obama is trying to do. he's trying to remind people of all the stakes in this election. if you get, for example, george w. bush elected over an al gore it makes tremendous impact. you go to war perhaps. >> and katty's point, does that get the people skiletted in 2008 by this hope, change message and by obama as the candidate as excited as playing to the fear that -- especially playing to 12 years ago, i'm not so sure. chris: ok. >> i agree with that. if at any point obama had said here's what we're going to do and it's really exciting, over the next four years we started doing this thing and now we have the largest wind farm in the world in oregon, we're going to have another one in nevada. if he had just come with that kind of -- chris: big question. but paul krugman in "the new york times" on friday said he's afraid to do that. because he will be hit again with big spending and more deficits if he proposes anything. >> and playing the republicans' game. chris: ok. let's look at what could be the key to everything. ohio. and you've written about it. every winning republican has ca
the general election. president obama and governor romney fighting it out for every last vote, especially in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on
to the polls with me. we'll win this election. we'll win ohio. >> new polls show president obama polling ahead of mitt romney among likely voters in the battleground states of virginia. in virginia, a reuters poll has president obama at 49% and mitt romney at 45%. in florida, reuters has president obama at 48% and mitt romney at 46%. in michigan, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. and in colorado, a ppp poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire, a new england college poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 44%. tonight, nate silver the "new york times" blog forecasts that president obama has an 81% of winning re-election and that he will win 304 electoral college votes and mitt romney will within 234. and the great thing about next week is i will no longer have to say ppp poll. i'm done with that poll. these polls are tight. these polls, you know, i refuse to use the language the poll shows president obama winning 50, because every one of these polls is within the margin of error. every one of them. so they are really showing
have just a 3% chance of winning the election. conversely, if barack obama lost ohio, he would only have an 8% chance of victory. that shows you just how incredibly important ohio may turn out to be. >> well, it's an important -- it's critical. it's a very diverse state. but you know, barack obama's very firm stand in saving the american automobile industry has paid important dividends in ohio. this morning i was in youngstown and youngstown, we produced the chevy cruz. that's a gm product that is the direct result of the president's intervention to bail out the automobile industry. >> as a former commander yourself, how do you think the president's done this week in >> i think he's done extremely well in terms of his sympathy and empathy for the groups, his visit. i think he was smart not to go into new york city, where it's too congested, too many problems. i think he's also done well in terms of showing the power of the office by just the latest move of having the military assist in delivery of fuel. it also shows up the hollowness of governor romney, his flip-flopping. for examp
the campaigns on the last weekend before the election. president obama will make his first stop today and paul steinhauser following mitt romney in pennsylvania. let's start with dan in ohio. what is on the president's schedule sph. >> well, you can expect that the president will continue to hammer away at this mitt romney on the auto industry. you pointed out there at the top of the show how this was a big push by the president yesterday in going after that ad by suggesting that jobs from a jeep plant would go overseas to china and, in fact yesterday, the president was recounting that he heard that some employees had gone to their managers with concerns that they would lose their jobs through china. so, the president using this big push to show, in his words, that mitt romney is massaging the facts. so, we expect that the president will continue to make that argument here today. the reason for that is because, as you know, so many jobs here in the state of ohio dependent on the auto industry and the bailout is something the president has been touting for a long time, but certainly ramped up i
'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> election day six days away. sandy's aftermath and president obama focus as he spend the day touring the devastation the monster storm left behind as romney returns to the campaign trail targeting the swing state of florida. today a special edition of the news edge you decide 2012 starts now. >>> thank you for joining us tonight. the president healed news conference after getting a close up look at the damage done by sandy meanwhile mitt romney on the campaign trail today. here is more on both. >>> it wasn't quite back to normal on the campaign trail but the president did make a trip up to new jersey though he refrained from any outright campaigning. mitt romney meanwhile rallied with his supporters in florida where the polls have the race in a dead heat. >> we begin in atlantic city, new jersey, tonight. president obama touring damage from hurricane sandy with republican governor chris christie. president promising the administration's support in rebuilding the jersey shore. >> for those like people i had a chance to meet on this
obama responds. we'll have the latest from the campaign next. >>> with just four days until the election, four days? did i say four days? four days until the election, presidential candidates campaigned in ohio where moments ago, mitt romney said this. >> your state is the won i'm counting on, by the way. this is the one we have to win. >> a new cnn poll of likely voters in ohio shows president obama polling at 50% and mitt romney at 47%. the president made three stops in ohio today where he talked about mitt romney's lie that chrysler is moving american jobs to china. >> you've got to own what you say. this isn't a game. these are people's jobs at stake. these are people's lives. companies like g.m. and chrysler, they put a lot of time and effort and money into building up their brand and letting americans know that the american auto industry is back. and we don't want suddenly a bunch of ads saying stuff that's not true. you don't scare hard working americans just to scare up some votes. you know i tell the truth. and you know i fight for working families every single day as hard as i
, jews, gentiles... >> narrator: obama arrived in chicago after the election of the city's first black mayor, harold washington. >> ...have joined hands to form a new democratic coalition... (applause and cheers)ch >> i think that the fact that chicago had elected an african-american mayor in harold washington sort of emphasized with barack that he was coming to a city where blacks were a major presence and had some significance. >> narrator: washington's politics were a living examplen' of what obama was looking for. >> what washington was able to do was to put together these coalitions-- african-americans, latinos and progressive whites. and he was able to pull that together and beat the machine. >> god bless you all and thank you from the bottom of my heart. >> and that kind of coalition building was incredibly influential for barack. >> narrator: obama's laboratory would be the city's south side. >> we had put an ad in a number of newspapers for a community organizer in the south side of chicago. i'm looking for anybody who might be a good organizer, but i particularly need somebod
president obama, he will work with the opposite party if elected president. in response to that, senate majority leader harry reid had a very quick reaction. he said, mitt romney fantasy that senate democrats will work with him to pass his severely conservative agenda is laughable . [laughter] obviously harry is a little bit of a problem in washington. but what will the congressional balance of power look like after the election? first, let's take a look at the house. a total of 200 -- 345 seats here . and 218 need for a majority. and the fact of the matter is that according to party politics , 108 of those seats, 170 are leaning democrat, 178 dim. and to 24, 224 republican. thirty-three are tossups, so the fact of the matter is the house is a done deal for the republicans. it is a safe bet the republicans will continue to control the house. it is a different deal in the senate. thirty-three seats are up this cycle. thirty-three seats, and democrats hold 23 of those, 23, so they are the most vulnerable in this election. that is what you are so much about how the republicans will to cont
the election in the waning hours of the campaign. and what shuld worry the obama campaign with their race so tight that you can hear is quilt is not the unraveling cover-up on been gauzy or a bust response to a major est coast hurricane. what should worry the obama campaign is that this race is all about the economy, his record, and responsibility where the unemployment rate and in this economic recovery now stand. voters simply trust governor romney more on this most imrtant issue. let's reveal -- that is revealed in poll after poll. a new "washington post" poll shows governor romney turning the economy around. with an 11-point lead as well, and to america trust moreo work with both parties in congress. so to give this election does turn on the economy, governor romney has, perhaps, an edge going into the election's final hours. we will take up the election, which way the swing states we will breaking key demographics with former bush chief of staff and campaign savant karl rove. retired navy admiral james lyons joins us he says the american people deserve to hear the truth about pin gauzy,
